Editorial Reviews

The first Billy Jack film! A malicious motorcycle gang harasses the residents of a small California town, intimidating most residents to not report them to the police. Among the gang's crimes is the rape of four young women. As the gang attempts to threaten the women into not testifying at the indictment hearing, one of the women, Vicki, comes under the protection of Billy Jack, who has also had several run-ins with the gang. Packed with bikes and bikins, this breakout drive-in hit propelled star Tom Laughlin to independent stardom and began a whole new movie legend! Featuring a spectacular new high-definition digital transfer for unsurpassed quality!

I'd be willing to bet, If you were to ask any Tom Laughlin fan what their favorite film was they'd probably say "Billy Jack" but for me it's always been "Born Losers". This is a movie about a gang of Hell's Angels running rampant in a small California town. The town's people live in complete fear of the bikers and even though the police have guns they seem afraid to step in or confront the Bikers. Tom Laughlin who plays Billy Jack is absolutely great in the role he created.

On the outside, Billy Jack seems like an easy going guy as he goes about minding his own business. Unfortunately for him, he just can't stand by and watch someone being victimized. It seems that the motorcycle gang has set their sights on a young woman and Billy Jack comes to her aid. Now this is the point when the tension between the gang and Billy Jack begins to boil over and everything starts to explode as Billy Jack takes on the biker gang by himself. Born Losers definitely has the goods and continues to deliver them right up until the end. This movie was not a big Hollywood blockbuster, It was a low budget independent film and the most successful of it's time.

Billy Jack fans do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of "Born Losers" today, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. This was the first film that the character of Billy Jack appeared in and after seeing him you won't forget him. This movie has violence and some nudity, so it's definitely not for the whole family. This is my favorite Billy Jack film and I'm glad to finally have it on DVD.

Image Entertainment states that a new spectacular high-definition digital transfer for unsurpassed quality was used for this DVD release.

Awesome biker film! Stars the legendary Tom Laughlin as Billy Jack in this violent tale of bikers terrorizing a small California beach town and raping college chicks at the bikers clubhouse( looks like it was an old spanish mission)It starts off with the charactor Billy Jack who is a green beret/ former rodeo rider/ rancher and who has just returned home from the war. He lives alone in a trailer in the nearby hills and now unemployed comes to town to discuss bank buisness/work Soon after Billy Jack becomes a one -man fighting machine who has to battle it out with the bikers for the safety of the town and Vicky Barrington, a rich, spoiled, but spunky college chick who falls into the hands of the bikers!(the townspeople and police in the town are cowardly fools, with the exception of Deputy Fred) Excellent opening scenes with the Billy Jack theme playing in the background as we see Billy Jack surveying the beauty of the California mountains and wildlife, and then riding down to the town(Big Rock) in his jeep. Very cool scenes with Vicky riding down the Pacific Coast Highway on her " bike"(Big Sur area) decked out in a revealing white bikini, go go boots and funky shades! Later scene with the "Born Losers" theme playing with her being chased and bugged by the bikers and their "hogs"! Violent scenes with an early road rage incident when a motorist bumps the gang leaders bike and it turns nasty! The hostage scenes at the bikers clubhouse and the very cool showdown with Gangrene and the other bikers at a Mobil gas station! The biker gang called the"Losers" has to be the most realistic and scariest portrayals in movie history! excellent cast, script, soundtrack and tale of revenge and mans fight for law and order!Read more ›

This was never more than a cult movie to begin with and this DVD is the cut for TV version. All but the most benign nudity is gone and so is the more agressive violence. This leaves it a pathetic kiddie version of the original. Unfortunately, there probably is not an original copy left as in the old days, once the movie was cut for TV then the original was often discarded as no further use could be seen for the complete movie. Obviously it would never return to theaters and the original could never be shown on TV so what posible use could it be. VCRS and DVDS, who knew? If your looking for that raw hard cheap exploitation film that we all loved, this ain't it. Save your money.

This movie i rate good,has a soft music menu also has some scratches in the film that i noticed.
Running Time on this is 113m.
Good stereo separation on the commentary but also very loud!
The commentary with Tom and Delores were Outta-Sync with what they were discussing.
In the movie those 4 chicks were just asking for trouble and they found it with the bikers,guess they were curious.
What a dumb idot,the guy in the volkswagon mouthing off to a bunch of bikers that were,and did kick his ass they wouldn't let up once they got him.
Make him pay!
He made the mistake of not keeping his eyes to himself when pulling up next to them.
The 1 chick on the back of Child's bike,who is a really cool dude,ruthless looking,enticed him by using a mouth gesture but he was staring before that.
Bad move on his part and after he accidently hit the Pres bike his mouth got him in trouble,the Pres was gonna let it go.
I think the part that got me was hearing his two front teeth break.
That Gangrene was a woman hitter with his fist yet and Speechless was something else too along with Crabs.
Two male bikers kissing was a turn off for me Yuck,but to each his own.
Liked Jack Starrett,that was a good role for him.
When you run up against that many bikers it's best to keep your eyes forward and your mouth shut and pray and hope they don't start something with you or anyone else for that matter.
I would recommend this movie,in spite of everything i enjoyed it.
